    What do you mean? A dash where? There is only one number. Give us an example.

    Excellent John that's the number I would like to add - dash between.
    How do I convert those number to date in MMM-DD-YY format?
    I tried replacing 00-00-00 to MMM-DD-YY but it gives me date like Dec-09-74 instead of today's date.

    your help is very much appreciated.
    Thank You.
